Herc bend things by Loopydave Herc bend things by Loopydave
Old movie time again.... watched the 1958 'Hercules', starring Mr America, Steve Reeves.

Here Hercules is busy on his lesser known 13th labour - taking all the metal spears in the armoury and bending them into funny animal shapes. Apparently he was a hoot at kids parties.

Pencil sketch, colour work in photoshop.

As a fan of the old Peplum films, another great joke art would be to show Hercules sleeping. Steeve, Alan Steel, Reg Park, and other strong guys all took naps or were drugged at one point or another. It was a weird motif.

It's kind of refreshing to see a situation where a lady tries to compete physically, but fails doing so without admitting failure.  This is a fair and realistic portrayal of gender difference.  I don't think we see that anymore in today's media where Hollywood is trying to placate a bunch of feminist lobbyists with all these Mary Sue clichés that really douche it up for everyone except said placated crowd.

I just got pointed to your page by an online friend..  OH GODS the raging massive amounts of pure, raw, unedited ( and "UN-politically correct" ) humor in your works... *PRICELESS!!*

I see this particular pic and can't help but remember my age and think back to the dawn of the time of television ( ok.. maybe not the dawn "dawn".. more like the " NOON of Television"   )  with a very old movie that they had to DUB his voice in..
  *Hercules in New York"  starting Arnold Schwarzenegger himself.  en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hercules…

Funny you should mention the 'Hercules in New York'..... I plan to do a series of Hercules images and picked up that movie just the other day to watch :D

yes drew not paint and I tease him all the time, he knows I'm joking. I'm jealous of his skill. 

Computer Generated Image uses NO PAINT whatsoever.

I use paint, both watercolor and oils. 

Its stinky and messy but I like it

No, no no- Iole, it's about the technique! The technique! Hands further from the centre...gah, never mind.

Seriously, great job here! Immense talent with an equally immense sense of humour is always a good thing!

Thank God it wasn't the 1970's Hercules in New York... While I'm here Sir Loop of Dave, Fury Kiss Mouse and a Hippy Glue Deer.  Thanks for the scribbles this year, and I hope Santa brings you a nice sharp pencil for being good.
